CQOD: 11/10/07 -- Schroy: Lord, forgive

Christian Quotation of the Day

November 10, 2007
Feast of Leo the Great, Bishop of Rome, 461
    At this, she turned around and saw Jesus standing there, but she did not realize that it was Jesus.
    "Woman," he said, "why are you crying? Who is it you are looking for?" Thinking he was the gardener, she said, "Sir, if you have carried him away, tell me where you have put him, and I will get him."
    Jesus said to her, "Mary." She turned toward him and cried out in Aramaic, "Rabboni!" (which means Teacher).
    -- John 20:14-16 (NIV)

    Lord, forgive—
    That I have dwelt too long on Golgotha,
    My wracked eyes fixed
    On Thy poor, tortured human form upon the cross,
    And have not seen
    The lilies in Thy dawn-sweet garden bend
    To anoint Thy risen feet; nor known the ways
    Thy radiant spirit walks abroad with men.
    ... Pauline Schroy

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I long to be at Your feet.
